Question about 1996 Mitsubishi Eclipse
The charging systems is working now, but the car barely runs. Sounds weird, like maybe the choke is stuck shut? Exhaust smells nasty. Seems to be running on 2 cylinders... Car is 1996 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder, 2.0 Turbo, manual transmission. I replaced the plugs, no better. Checked plug wires, all ohm out about the same. Is there something inline with the fusible link that could have popped as a result of the surge that killed the link?
burned valve is likely the culprit.... or bad rings.... hook air up to that cyclinder one at a time.... and listen where the air is escaping... be aware that the motor will rotate till the piston is at the bottom of it's rotation. if it's a burned valve you will have to remove the head and replace it but somewhat easier job then replacing the rings. darn almost forgot.... it can also be a blown head gasket.... same procedure but you might need a brush and some soap water to test for an air leak at the side of the head. when you are done spray some wd 40 on it to get the water off so the spark plugs do not arc.

There are 7 screws all together to remove the door pannel. First, you have to take off the hanlde for the door. the 2 plastic covers on the handle pop off revealing 2 screws on the top and bottom, remove those. then behind the the door handle on the inside, pull it as if you were to open it and there is a screw that you have to remove. Then there are 2 screws on either side of the door pannel, both are farily close to the top, remove those, and then its just a matter of popping the pannel off. start from the bottom, pop it off then slide it up. becarefull, after the door panel is free, there is a connection for the power doors and windows unhook that then the pannel will be free. after that the speaker will be right there and its common sense on removing that. good luck.

possible solution, there is an idle circuit on your mass airflow sensor that allows air to bypass the throttle plate. if this little actuator is not working then no idle air will be able to get by the throttle plate which then tells the mass air flow sensor that there is no air moving which in turn tells the computer to stop pumping gas into the cylinders...which make your car shut off. hope this helps, cheers
